Michael Knowles: Why Catholic Support for the Right to Life Is Lagging
"Michael Knowles, host of the daily wires, the Michael Knowles show, everybody check that out. Michael, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. It is great to be with you, man. Thanks for having me. Well, it's great to have you on the show all the time. I mean, it's great to have an apostate Catholic, be able to explain these horrendous poll numbers. I was like, Michael, you got some splaining to do my friend. Got this plane. Catholics, according to pew, you got 48% of Catholics that believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases. So that's 48 to 47%. What the heck is going on right now? Well, it's very sad, but the reason that you see that is because Joe Biden calls himself a Catholic. Nancy Pelosi calls herself a Catholic. The Cuomo family has called themselves Catholics. They don't ascend to the teachings of the Catholic Church, but they were raised Catholic. Maybe they went to church on Sunday sometimes. And so they take it on as a kind of cultural identity. In a similar way that Jews will do this. Jews being an ethnicity and a religion will say I'm Jewish, even if they don't believe anything about the Jewish religion and they don't follow any of the practices. I have a sort of personal connection to this in that I was raised a cradle Catholic. I was, we have infant baptism, that's one of the reasons that people will keep this identity even if they don't actually practice the religion. And I went away. I fell away from the faith for about ten years. And I came back to it, and I came back to it in a very gradual way. And I came back to it through certain Protestant thinkers and through certain actually not even not Christian thinkers, and then I was convinced God exists. And then I was convinced Jesus is who he says he is, and that I was convinced that the Catholic Church really is the Catholic Church. And so I came back to it with all the zeal of a revert. All the zeal of a convert. And it drives me crazy because it take, for example, Joe Biden, who says he's Catholic, he goes, I believe he receives communion at mass, he is in a state of grave and unrepentant sin. He is supporting abortion in a very public way. He is committing the sin of scandal. He is committing all sorts of skins. And the scandal here is that he's leading the flock astray and it's a real risk. When Christ says, it's not going to go very well for those of you who lead the little ones astray. It's just thinking about that verse. Millstones and all of that. That's what we're talking about here. We're actually not even really talking about

Life Imitates Art With 'Wag the Dog'
"Everybody needs to go back and rent the 1997 classic movie wag the dog. In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.
Charlie Kirk and Eric Brainstorm What We Can Do About Election Fraud
"You and I were talking on your program about dinesh d'souza's new film coming out 2000 mules. When you discover that there's a massive criminal operation to steal an election, first, it leaves you speechless, and then like you were saying, then you get very angry. That's right. But then, of course, the question is, what can we do about this? When people are telling us, oh, by the way, shut up. Don't even talk about that. I mean, somebody tells me to shut up, I'm going to scream about it. But what do you think we can do about this? Not enough. We can do something. I mean, we can hopefully root out the criminal conspiracy that was illegally ballot trafficking. These ballots and all these states and we have evidence of that. We have evidence enough where you could lay this out in a court of law. Right. And you and I went through that evidence for 6 hours asking every skeptical cross examination question we could. But not enough. I mean, when the bank was robbed, right? So what's the insurance policy for the country when you rob an election? I have some ideas. Yeah, but the point is that they're probably not going to happen. Well, I'm just being realistic. No, no, no, but it's not going to be another election. This is not going to happen, right? I mean, there will be in the future, hopefully. But the point is that once that election was stolen, once those laundered ballots crossed the precipice into the ballot box, they became indistinguishable from the other ballots. We know that. So hopefully we could root out the bottom of the criminal conspiracy. Hopefully we can make sure this does not happen again. Look, I mean, if I were to be very blunt to use kind of a religious example, is that, you know, we need to have the same sort of impact or the same sort of overton window moving moment when it used to be called a conspiracy theory that there were people and members of the Catholic Church that were abusing young boys and girls. Right. And there was a huge revelation that showed that not only was it happening, it was being covered up. And this is not an anti Catholic state. My best Friends in the world are Catholic, I have a lot of respect for Catholics. The point is that that used to be something that people would immediately say is not true.
How Patrick Coffin Deduced That Pope Francis Is an Anti-Pope
"Is it possible to undo something if somebody puts if the Pope puts something out in an encyclical? You're saying it's binding, that he is the Pope and that there is somehow infallibility enters into that. So is it possible that something like that could ever be reversed because it's possible in American law, but now we're not talking about American law. We're not talking about the Supreme Court. We're talking about a higher court for Catholics. So how does that work? I enjoy using the Supreme Court analogy because it's pretty, it's a pretty clear analogy that you have the written text, in this case, the Bible, in that case, the constitution. Then you have this living body that's interpreting it. Where the analogy breaks down, is that the truth claim of the Catholic Church is that she's the unique church founded by Jesus Christ, the Christ has one bride, one lord one faith, one baptism. And if one Pope contradicts a previous Pope, that is the end of Catholicism. That means it's all. The answer is my question. I thought that's what we're dealing with here. And this is why it is important for you in making this case and you're saying, if this Pope behaves in that way, then you're saying logically, if I'm to believe that the church is the church, then I have to believe that maybe it's possible, in fact he's not the Pope. And so that's the case you're making right now. That's the journey that I took to get to this conclusion, Eric, but this is a very important issue you're raising. The fact that Pope Francis has said things that are crazy loopy, hard left, socialist communist, in bed with all the enemies of John Paul the second and all previous popes. That's just confirmatory evidence. That is not the kill shot. The kill shot is he who would renounce the papacy must renounce the office, its canon three three 2.2. Don't believe me, canon three three 2.2. Some very first sentence. That word monas was put in there by John Paul the second in 1983 with the help of Joseph ratzinger himself when he was the prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith. I don't know why. I don't know if that's providential, but that's the word you must use or that the concept has to be
Is Francis an Anti-Pope or Just a Bad Pope? Patrick Coffin Explains
"Isn't it just possible that you have a Pope that is, it's like a bad president in the sense that, yes, he is the president. Yes, he is the Pope, but. He's not doing things that are officially wrong or he doesn't have the power that faithful Catholics are giving him in a sense. Well, it's certainly true that catechesis is at an all time low in the Catholic Church in the last two generations. And I would reply that papal teaching and what we call the gift of infallibility does not only obtain when it comes to an ex cathode or from the throne dogmatic definition. Catholic Church teaches that in the ordinary magisterium. So encyclicals, absolute constitutions, the church expresses the truth about Jesus Christ and what we must do and what we must believe to be Catholics. It does not have to be that extraordinary mode of infallibility. This is important. And I'm very glad I asked you this because your clarifying something for me. I just like to know these things. That's extraordinary. Sure. I'll call it a vault. It's like an archive of official cafe teaching. You can find it on Vatican dot VA. It's called the ACTA apostolica sadist, big mouthful. It's simply means the acts of the chair of the apostles. And it's the official lexicon or vault of official teaching. And in 2015 and 2016, remember the infamous synod on the family where there's so much confusion about homosexuality and divorce from remarried Catholics suddenly being able to have received fully community without a decree of nullity. All that confusion, which was replied to by the Argentinian bishops as allowing a loophole which contradicts 2000 years of sacred tradition with respect to indiscriminate. That document, which is called a Morris letitia, by the way, I was saying that the name of the document into my cell phone and it came back amorous letitia. So that's what I call it. Amorous letitia. Both that document and the letter that was published by the Argentine bishops. Both of them are in the AAS,

Catholic School Promotes Gender Confusion
"And I looked to a Catholic school to be an ally in our fight to break our daughter free from the grip of gender confusion. We were naive. Our daughter now 15 was 13 when she was coached into believing that she was born in the wrong body, and could and could change to be the opposite sex. This led her to self loathing. But instead of finding a partner within the Roman Catholic Church, we discovered that our local Catholic high school had adopted procedures that promote transgenderism. This situation has left us with no safe place safe place to educate our child and a profound feeling of disappointment and abandonment. As I previously wrote for the daily signal, our daughter's transgender identity came with little warning. She started 9th grade at a public charter high school in the fall of 2020. But due to COVID-19 didn't actually set foot in a classroom.

Michael J. O'Loughlin Previews His New Book, 'Hidden Mercy'
"C. S. Lewis said that if you could see grief and it was colored black that the world would be wreathed in black from space. Do you believe that to be the case of the country and the aids crisis? It was a pretty grim time. Like you said in the intro, like I wrote about in the book, it was a time when people were not only suffering, but they were being ignored by so many parts of society government pharmaceutical the church generally. And there weren't a lot of moments for hope, but what I tried to do was profile those individuals who were stepping up and doing the right thing. So there was a lot of grief and darkness, but there were people who for many reasons and in my case I profiled Catholic remote by their face who said we have to do something step top and love their neighbor as they were called to do by the gospel. That's why I think it is very timely. We're going to be dealing with long COVID for a long time, and we're going to be dealing with the deaths of despair and people who are lonely and isolated. But sister Carolyn, sister Mary Allen and Bellevue Illinois, sister Patrice Murphy and New York, father, Bill mcnichols in New York, father, Tony Maguire and San Francisco. You've got a legion of heroes in this book. So tell me why you wrote it. You're a young man. Why did you go back and find all those people who are my age? Yes, so I'm in my 30s and I've been reporting on the Catholic Church and politics and religion in the United States for about a decade. And I really didn't know any of the story. And it was important to me because I'm a religion reporter. I'm also a gay man and I was intrigued by this relatively recent history that just wasn't taught. I didn't learn it from my family. I didn't learn it in schools. I certainly didn't learn to church. And I realized that there was this vast wealth of information from people who were 20, 30 years older than me, that just hadn't been passed down. And I thought there's all this collected wisdom and insight that I think is applicable to all people. A part of our history. And I wanted to capture it before it was too late. And some of the lessons in mercy talk about why it's important to step up and do the right thing. Even if society isn't quite there yet, even if society is pregnant a lot of shame and stigma and people like sister Carol and other Bill really were confident in their belief that they were called to serve their neighbors and they did so through heroic means and with a sense of great humility at the same time.
Supreme Court Rejects Challenge to New York Vaccine Mandate
"Court yesterday denied the right of 20 healthcare workers in New York to do phi defy the states mandate for healthcare workers. And these 20 workers said where Catholic, we can't take the vaccine because it's related to. Vaccines developed by stem cell research on unborn babies. In fact, they did not present as Catholic organizations and they did not actually reflect Catholic doctrine which has no problem. None at all, the Vatican has ruled, take the vaccine, and the court declined to issue exemption to these 20 disparate individuals. Justice Gorsuch descent, justice Elena joined the descent, what a great search, justice. Thomas would have granted cert. Some people have, I believe, erroneously read this as a hostility to religious liberty. I don't read that as a hostility to religious liberty. I read that too. We're not going to let random 20 people come in and claim that they're the Catholic Church exercising doctrine because it's not against people having individuals in idiosyncratic religious beliefs. It's just that we can empower everyone to have their own religious doctrine and say you've got to pay attention to us. Sincerely, how religious belief is part of the test and then who else has it? How long has it been around and how long have you held this belief in the case of these cells are based on prohibited abortion dependent research? It's simply not true. The people who are most concerned with that have said, it's not true. That would be the Vatican and American bishops and therefore the court declined to go forward. Those who are throwing up their hands and worried about this, I tell you this is the best religious liberty court we have ever had. It will get better and ABC is not going to miss her shot. When it comes up, but they're not going to get dragged into a premature firing of that shot.
Notre-Dame Interior Faces Woke 'Disney' Revamp
"Merrick Johns Merrick. Why don't we talk about Notre-Dame? The cathedral that burned and is now being reconstructed as some kind of a Tower of Babel or what is happening in Paris. The update us, John? Yeah. And African immigrant who seems to be Muslim, but they are kind of keeping a quiet set fired and Notre-Dame. They covered it up. We watched it burn on international TV. Heartbroken people from all around the world donated hundreds of millions of dollars to reconstruct Notre-Dame exactly as it had been. But the French government and the French Catholic Church have decided to do something different. They are going to remake the interior of Notre-Dame, including the parts that didn't burn, because large parts of it were undamaged. They're going to rip out the exquisite alters and stained glass windows and crucifixes and confessionals. And they're going to make it like an Epcot center for generic spirituality for people who are spiritual but not religious with like quotes in shiny and African languages projected on the wall. You know, the way they used to do with the Hayden planetarium in the 1970s. The whole thing is going to be okay, but why easier than Disney? Much white, why would they go to this extent? I mean, it does seem. I'm not surprised that they would try to do something stupid. But the question is, why would they try to undo what's been there? You're saying that they're effectively going backwards and they're wrecking the stuff that the Muslim arsonists did not himself wreck. Right, right, they were going to be tearing me tearing out beautiful 19th century artwork that was done to exquisitely recapture the spirit of the
Matt Walsh Talks About Problems in the Catholic Church
"I mean the church has to be the leader here not the follower Yeah I totally agree And that's why what happened with me with this church at SLU it's kind of a microcosm of a much much larger problem And that the pastor at this church he came to the mob He obviously was originally in favor of bringing me on and the mob was angry the people are angry And so he came to it And this is what we find all across the country not just in the Catholic Church but I think in Christendom in the west generally speaking are people leaders who are supposed to be representing the truth and bringing and guiding their flocks to the truth who instead have conform themselves to the world which is exactly what we're warned against in the gospels You have to think like Yeah I have no doubt that in many churches if a priest or papa were to stand up there and give a really firm homily on something like abortion you're going to upset some people in the some might get up and walk out right there on the spot But if they do then they're not there if you're not at the church looking for truth then you shouldn't be there anyway And we shouldn't be catering to people who don't want moral truth at church Once you give up on that then what's the point What's the purpose What exactly are you doing Now you're just kind of like it's a meeting ground for people It's a book club or something And we don't need that There's other places people can go to go and socialize and have community There's a very specific purpose of a church and if you abandon that purpose then the church might as well not even exist
Matt Walsh Describes Event Being Cancelled at Saint Louis University
"What happened with that mad You were going out to this is supposed to be I believe a Catholic university and you were supposed to give a speech and did I read this story correctly that they tried to cancel you out there at a Catholic university for doing like Catholic stuff Did I read that right Oh you did Multiple times And I'm Catholic myself and I was invited to speak at a Catholic university on the pro life issue And as most people know the Catholic Church has a firm position on that issue and says that abortion is intrinsically evil which it is So you would think it's like a match made in heaven I can go and talk about this But the most hostile reception I've ever received was at this Catholic university And the second most hospital have to say was also at another Christian university So what does that tell you And we are kicked out of one venue and we went and then the church on campus said okay we'll take you And then there was a petition that was started against me in the faculty and staff signed a statement saying we don't want him And so then the church apologized for inviting me and they kick me out too and we landed on our third venue which was just across campus It was actually technically off campus across the street from the campus And I did the event It went great but we had must have been a hundred or more leftist protesters who showed up to my event blocking traffic protesting And I did there's video that I went out to the street to talk to them to this hoard And I guess they weren't expecting that I walked out to the street just to say hello And they all started backing away and I told them to get off the street and they did and that was kind of nice But the fact that at a Catholic university this is not just like an attack on differing points of view and on free expression It's that also But it's even worse because this is the expression of moral truth that we shouldn't kill babies fully in line with Catholic teaching and that that wouldn't be welcome on a Catholic campus is really really sad and
Supreme Court Seems Ready to Launch Social and Political Earthquakes
"Headlines on the row case yesterday. It's actually the dobbed case about row. From The Wall Street Journal, Supreme Court majority shows openness to Mississippi's precedent breaking abortion law. From The New York Times, Supreme Court appears open to upholding Mississippi abortion restriction from The Washington Post. Supreme Court seems inclined to uphold Mississippi abortion law that would undermine roe V wade. And from The Wall Street Journal editorial page, an abortions crossroad at the Supreme Court, this part of their editorial this morning. These columns have long supported the policy of legal abortion before viability albeit uneasily. As technology has revealed the development of the fetus. I don't agree with that, but they are libertarian leaning at The Wall Street Journal. I'm Catholic. I think it's wrong. I believe if you're pregnant, you have to have the baby and given the rise of safe haven laws across the United States. If you don't want the baby, go give the baby away. And it will be well taken care of my loving parents. The burden of pregnancy is simply not enough to justify ending that life. It is very inconvenient. It's very hard. It may lead to shame and cost and some sorrow and some risk to the mother. I know all that. But that life is life. And if you get to a doctor, the doctor will take care of you for free if necessary. Give you a prenatal care. And when the baby is born, you can give that baby away. There's no downside. None whatsoever. Safe haven laws. They came up a lot in the Supreme Court argument yesterday because they matter. The burden that used to be lifelong is no longer life long. The safe haven laws are in every state now. You can give away that baby. And it's up to the church, by the way, especially the Catholic Church in any church that has been pro life all these 50 plus years. It's up to us to step up and add even more resources and make them even more available to women having a crisis pregnancy. One they didn't plan on, one that they fear, one that may lead to abuse. And it's important for us to be there for them in a way that we haven't ever been before and perhaps it will unleash a flood of taking care of children in need and finding new adoption of possibilities and finding new parents and taking care of those moms. Crisis pregnancy centers, thank you all these years for waiting. Not over yet. But I think the day is coming when people are going to rush to you to help because they know for sure. It's the only alternative for moms and crisis.
"american catholic church" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Catholic bishops just sidestepped a confrontation with Joe Biden over communion by Brian Bennett. Hundreds of the country's Catholic bishops, their names on tags hanging from green lanyards around their necks, sat at long tables inside a conference room in Baltimore on Wednesday to vote on pressing issues facing the American Catholic Church. First, the bishops tested their electronic keypads by voting whether to have ice cream at the break. I scream, got the votes. But later in the day, a more significant decision came up, when the bishops voted on a 30 page teaching about the eucharist, Catholicism's central ritual of taking bread and wine to be in the presence of Jesus Christ. The vote, and the documents wording were closely watched for signs that the bishops may include a rebuke of president Joe Biden, the country's first Catholic president to support access to abortion, and open the door for priests to deny the communion right to public officials like the president who hold policy positions that run counter to church teachings. But that didn't happen. The hard liners backed down and the U.S. conference of Catholic bishops adopted a softer wording in an effort to keep the conference unified. Instead of calling out Catholic politicians who support access to abortion, the document included instructions for Catholics who exercise some form of public authority to look inward. Those worshippers, the document states have a special responsibility to form their consciences and accord with the church's faith and the moral law, and to serve the human family by upholding human life and dignity. The document passed by a wide margin. The debate over the place of communion and Catholic life and what responsibility Catholic politicians have to publicly advocate for policies the church supports comes at a time of sharp divisions within the American Catholic Church over social issues. Biden's presidency has highlighted those fis, the bishop's decision to avoid a direct confrontation with Biden followed a lengthy, warm meeting between Biden and Pope Francis and Rome, on October 29th. After their rare 90 minute conversation in the Vatican, Biden said Francis called him a good Catholic, and said he should keep receiving communion. The Pope himself didn't make a public statement on their meeting, Pope Francis has called for unity among the bishops and has counseled a pastoral approach to congregants like Biden, saying that the matter of taking bread and wine should be handled in discussions between priests and individual churchgoers. But among the bishops, disagreements remain. During the conference in Baltimore on Wednesday, archbishop Joseph nahman, of Kansas City Kansas, prodded his fellow bishops to spend more time tending to Catholic politicians seen as acting in a way contrary to Catholic teachings. I'm not sure that we've taken that seriously as bishops, our responsibility for the care of the souls of these politicians, to really enter into a dialog now. A blue mask reading, remember the unborn hanging from one ear. I think it is important that each of us take to heart this and have these dialogs with people in public life. A committee of bishops spent months riding and revising the document titled the mystery of the eucharist in the life of the church. The idea to lay out in more detail how the faithful should think about communion came out of a closed door working group that senior bishops conveyed in the months after Biden was elected. Some bishops were concerned that Biden's high profile as a Catholic who also campaigned on expanding access to abortions would cause confusion and congregations over church teachings. The debate has exposed the growing riffs in the American Catholic Church over church teachings on gay marriage, the role of women in the leadership of the church, and whether objections to abortion extends beyond an individual's personal conscience to broader policy decisions. The fight among Catholics, as broader political implications, one in 5 voters in the 2020 presidential election were Catholic, roughly half of them voted for Biden. The Catholic Church has lobbied for Biden's next major legislative package, the build back better plan to include a prohibition on federal funding going to abortions. Getting rid of the high amendment, the measure that prohibits federal funding for abortion except if the woman's life is in danger, or if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, has been a priority for progressive Democrats, and they have successfully pushed Biden to the left on the issue. The amendment has been reauthorized every year since 1976, and Biden used to support it, but he refers to his position and denounced it in 2019 when running for president. Biden dropped the high amendment from his proposed budget earlier this year. The house is expected to vote on the build back better package later this week after which it is expected to be taken up by the Senate. It could be left to Biden to referee whether federal funding for abortions stays in the Bill, or gets caught. Perhaps, once again, putting his political policy positions at odds with the Catholic Church..

But you can see of an even lines up now where it's like woke versus not woke in having people trying to identify with labels really is reducing people. So that they lose it is that are and what they're doing right. The novel begins in kind of a very dramatic way where he is sitting in the woods trying to find his around a sniper. Who's been hunting him down. It's on starts on july fourth and then we kind of go back to july first and the novel takes us over those days back to july fourth. Let me actually read the Because it's such an iconic opening sentence. Okay so this is the opening paragraph of the novel now when these dread ladder days of the old violent beloved usa and of the christ forgetting christ haunted death-dealing western world. I came to myself in a grove of young pines and the question came to me. Has it happened at last. So that's the that's the opening of the story And we get this kind of sense of imminent catastrophe In the opening pages where he's convinced that something really really bad is going to happen. That's something only becomes clear over the course of the novel. So a big plot feature of this is this device that dr. Tom moore has created the ontological app. Zometa that's the short version of the name. I think it's the is it. The qualitative quantitative for the quantitative qualitative onto app. Summitter a joke. That's made in the book. But i actually don't remember and you know it's interesting. So this is his plan to solve the spiritual malaise of the world. He describes himself as a bad catholic. He is someone who takes his feelings of well. Does he lack feelings of guilt or or does he just let feelings of contrition or does he lacked both. Actually yeah oath until the end of the novel right so he he lacks feelings lacks feelings of guilt but he has a sense that he should feel guilty and he should feel contrite for his sins namely You know i sort. Of the major ones being drunkenness and fornication and yet he doesn't and as with some of these other novels you know the the What sets him apart from. Some of the other characters is not that he is more moral but that he is in a sense more honest or more awake to.

"For the church to be called the house of the father. With the door's always open. So that if someone moved by the spirit comes. They're looking for god he or she will not find a closed-door communion to me and the tradition in which i was raised is the ultimate recognition of christ's sacrifice for us. It is the reenactment of the last supper. In which christ knew that he was going to die for the sins of humanity and he asked his brothers to come and take and eat of him. Catholics believe in trans injury. Which is the idea. That the communion bread the community wind become the body and blood of jesus christ in recognition of the sacrifice. He made in catholic tradition. There's this debate about approaching communion if you're not in a state of grace but then we have pope francis saying that in some senses receiving. The eucharist is about receiving that greece. Heidi how do you think that this. Because you said it's not really about communion but it clearly is a little bit. How does this figure into the debate. About what communion is foreign. Who comedian is for. I guess what i would say is that it can be both both something that is for centers and in which we receive grace but at the same time the church does have some appropriate role in deciding how the sacraments are celebrated in who celebrates them and who partake of them. The eucharist is the source and summit of the christian life according to the catechism. Certainly it's very important. And visible way that catholics practice their faith so i believe that the bishops have a right duty of course to teach about the eucharist and to teach about what the church says about the dignity of human life and i would like to see our bishops teach and persuade but i don't think an emphasis on the punish side of how to get people to do what you want them to do is very effective and i say this both as a former teacher and as a parent my friend john carr who at georgetown now formerly with the bishop's conference always says we need to make abortion unthinkable before we make it illegal and i don't think the bishops are doing a very good job of persuading people about that. Ross this seems to make abortion the litmus test for whether or not the american catholic church or followers of the american catholic church will support a particular politician. What gets me about. This is that this is a very public and performance of action. Because if you're a priest you have absolutely no idea in general what most of the people who are receiving communion have done that day they could have committed any number of mortal or venial sins. They could have been divorced. They could have had extramarital sex and the reason why catholic politicians who are supportive of abortion rights come in for particular opprobrium is because we know where their positions are because they're public figures. Why abortion is the thing to make the stance on why not the death penalty or getting divorced or any number of factors because not saying that abortion abortions. Not an incredibly important issue to catholics. Who do believe that. It is a grave sin but there are lots of other grave sins on the abortion. Point is just that abortion is murder is worse than other sentence. Right i don. I don't think it's i think it's not actually particularly complex. The reason that people bring up the death penalty is that that's the closest you can get to parallel case where it is actually a matter of life and death where a human being is being killed. Now you can argue various reasons why we shouldn't think of abortion as murder and you had my colleague michelle goldberg and i on on the show and we you know we. We've had that argument but within the context of catholic teaching. That's the logic. Now i think having a preeminent issue like this does create a problem for the church where the other political parties seems to sort of accumulate a long list of issues that taken on their own or all less significant than abortion but in the case of certain aspects of the trump presidency. Do seem to add up to take the case of the death penalty abortion and the death penalty even so are still different because the death penalty is the execution of a person who's been found guilty of a serious crime in some cases. That person may actually be innocent. But that's what the state is attempting to do their to execute guilty. Which is again different from. What happens in abortion. No one is arguing that the unborn human being is guilty of a capital crime. My view is that the public nature. The performing nature is sort of the point. Right that yeah. In most cases nobody knows what kinds of sins were committing. Thank god in secret that we may or may not have confessed before we go up to take communion but politicians by virtue of being politicians by choosing the life. They've chosen they're responsible directly for war and peace and all times of things. You know where you can trace direct consequences from their policies and so the church does have a different relationship to them. Necessarily i mean. I guess i push heidi a little bit. I would say that. I wouldn't agree with it but i don't think it would be crazy for the church in the case of a death penalty supporting catholic politician to have a conversation about withholding communion given how that teaching has developed. I respect that. Heidi doesn't think that's appropriate. But i guess i'd ask. Is there anything where it would be appropriate. Yeah i mean. I can't think of a specific example but i do recognize that. That is the purview. And the responsibility of church leaders. I just think in this situation. It pretty clearly is not and with william bar. I pray for his conversion on that issue. And i think he's less likely to convert on that issue. If he's not receiving communion. I can speak personally about the importance of receiving the eucharist in my own life. And how i think it's been transformative. So the idea of denying that to someone seems counterproductive. I guess i would push back a little bit on you about the simplicity of abortion being murder. It's certainly is the taking of a life. I don't want to contradict church teaching here but it can be complicated. It's the reason why. Most i think pro-lifers do not call for the imprisonment or execution. I guess of a woman who has an abortion because they don't see it as simply murder in that way and i also think that while politicians need to be responsible for the positions that they personally hold or that they support either from their party or actions of their own as politicians. I do also think there's a little bit more nuance here in this situation. With biden at the same time it is currently the law of the land here and he has moved towards being more accepting of his. Party's you know liberalism or whatever you call it on abortion but he has never taken back the fact that he says he has personally opposed to it and i think that when we start thinking that a politician who's member of a party or an administration or a country that has anything that's against the catholic church. Then we're all kind of in trouble. Not just the republicans and their as you said growing number of things that they oppose that. Just don't happen to be abortion but many of us and we don't want the communion line to be.

As is the speaker of the house and multiple cabinet secretaries and senior officials catholic voters cast one fifth of the votes in the twenty twenty election and about half of them voted for biden but biden's presidency comes as the church is struggling internally over how to navigate. The role of the spiritual in the political sphere and his election has amplified tensions at the highest levels of the catholic church. Within days of biden winning the white house. Ten of the nation's most powerful bishops decided to launch a working group on how to approach a catholic president like joe biden the panel met twice over zoom in december and january and discussed how to respond to biden's policies that conflict with catholic teaching and how to minister to biden soul.

"So you might think that Joe Biden is in serious trouble with the American Catholic Church and he will be canceled for communion. Not so fast. The problem is that the bishops well understand the church has lost much moral authority in the USA because of the scandals. And the pope knows that as well, So they don't want another huge controversy, which would happen if the church sanctions, Mr Biden. So I do not believe any definitive action will be taken against the president and he will still receive the Eucharist. The problem is, how will the church explain that? It is clear that President Biden is harming potential human beings if you want to use that phrase in the eyes of the church. It is clear he is violating the collective conscience of millions of Americans by forcing us to pay for abortions with our tax dollars. Now the media loves Joe Biden, and they don't particularly like the Catholic Church so you can expect a report Taj to be sympathetic. To the president. But again, I don't believe the Catholic Church has the guts. To deny him communion. I'm Bill O Reilly..

"When you think he was just playing Christians.

But But what you're saying is you think Joe Biden is legitimately, um, genuine in this in his Catholic faith. Yes. So let me ask you that that's and this is I I don't get into social issues. Um, but but I think it's I think this is begs the question. S o. Then How do you reconcile that with the abortion issue? Yeah, well, I think that if you asked Uh, the you know that that's a big issue in the Catholic Church. You know, I'm very pro life. On have shown that for a long time, but I think that President Biden has struggled with this issue over his political career. And I think that His position has changed over time. I mean, he had one point was in favor of the Hyde amendment, which would prevent federal funding for abortion and things like that, and over time, he probably has made some politically expedient decisions. And I can't ascertain how he you know, clipped why he flip flopped on these issues. Ask any politician why they flip flopped on an issue some of it always is for, you know their political game, but Maybe something in his life moved him. I think that if you ask the average Catholic who goes to Mass on Sunday, they also believe that they should be able to take a vaccine for covert. That is based that, you know, using stem cells or ask the average Catholic that goes the math. In America, whether or not they believe in and birth control contraceptives of some sort, and I think that they would agree that those air okay and there's things that the Catholic Church even today looks down, looks down upon and frowns upon. And so, you know, I think the American Catholic churches and American Catholics are somewhat different than the churches the hole and I think that Biden may be representative of that great great stuff.

access to children give us rations of this I've been speaking to David classy of the survivors network of those abused by priests known a snap I think there are two culprits primarily it's the American Catholic Church hierarchy which refuses to act responsibly and one other people about these predators and who have for decades and and even now continue to shield them and prevent them from being criminally prosecuted and locked up where they belong and the second call but frankly are some very archaic predator friendly laws like the statute of limitations which are these arbitrary

reformed or eliminated kids will continue to be a risk like this of ones that the statute of limitations doesn't apply to you why haven't they been criminally charged primarily because I think the ships still to this day let these predators or help these predators flee the country bishop refused to turn over Greece personnel files to police and prosecutors and in part because these predators like most child molesters are very shrewd and very very cunning they tend to pick kids who can't tell or won't be believe from families that are less inclined to go to law enforcement and even now they're still in non law enforcement of far too many officials to give excessive deference to church officials church hierarchy is disclosing the names of some predator priests but years for decades late and they still provide the absolute minimum the amount of information sometimes they just provide literally the name of the offenders not a middle initial MA a work history not a photo not there last known whereabouts law enforcement can only do a better job with better laws and more resolved but before law enforcement can act or the court system can act it does take victims and witnesses and whistle blowers to find the courage to speak up each person the been the victim of sexual abuse by priests during your teenage years how did you find your voice a lot of therapy a lot of support from friends and family and I got involved in this support groups that and the more I listened to other victims the more I realize that what happened to me was very hurtful and it wasn't my fault and that nobody was in a better position to try to protect other kids than me I did contact law enforcement the statute of limitations on fortunately had expired but at least by stepping forward I publicly expose my perpetrator he was suspended from ministry are you still alive is not been defrocked but because I took action people who encounter him can Google his name and hopefully protect themselves and their families from do you know what your views the way he's looking what he's doing now yeah he's now living down in Florida and the last I knew he was working as a as a flight attendant it doesn't matter what their jobs or whether they're retired that people who are drawn to sexually assault kids seek out every opportunity to be around kids and so what it really does fall I think first

I get it right in the end I think this goes to once we get to this level to V. P. president. this level of politics I felt this way is a reporter to is that we get so cynical that we don't believe what we're seeing. the marriage is real I would always get this question you know from is Democrats other reporters sometimes you know is that their marriage can't possibly be real he refers to her as mother right this is not you know he we hear all this stuff. it is real absolutely Israel but so is the ambition and so is the focus on that long term path that long term trajectory everything I can tell all my all my reporting is that they did not believe they are pre destined for the White House but here they are so they're going for it in these are joint decisions that they make together one kind of it interesting insight you write that the second lady Karen pants rules the roost and that photo antique red phone in the vice president's office is more powerful than anyone knows this is been a feature in his during his governorship in Indiana that that phone is just got one person on the other hand that's current right. so Dick Armey actually so when they moved to Washington in two thousand two thousand one after he wins Dick Armey the of the old congressman Republican later meets with them he's an old hand at this point hence the freshmen and he says look might take some time for your family you know you should have a line directly for your family this will this phone call feel please ease like some must do this you should do that so that Christmas of two thousand one I believe is Karen bought him antique red phones phone if they can take rides on cherry red slaps it on there they run a line through their is old school right you know before cell is cell phones a series win and is just turn the kids that their three children are the only ones that have the phone number know what I founder and reporting is this when in particular when he was governor and she was stationed at our office across the hall in the in the state house to make phone calls throughout the day to coordinate how they were handling their role as First Lady there yes yeah this is new to the book I had some inklings of this when I was covering him day today but I was never able to put a finger on it until I started seriously reporting the book that's that's how she works that's in and that's that joint political career and power did either my parents the vice president Karen prince did you were you able to interview either them for the book now they won't talk for any books or profiles this is not right about this and in the opening. they. there's a couple of answers okay number one is that it's not they don't see it as their role to you know highlight themselves this is the public servant attitude that they talk about now with the the second layer of that is that in in this is there been other books written about him and and main profiles written about him so this is the official VP office policy. the other answer on this is that they also did politically don't want to piss off trump because they could be removed from the ticket hypothetically in twenty twenty that's not locked in obviously trump says that he's on there Dale everyone says that public but we also know about what happens with trump's agent advisors that get too much spotlight we got lots to cover plenty folk because one quick question that what's his relationship like with Donald Trump. warm but a little loose it's not very close you know what I wrote about this in the book and it I think it's it's still true the front is close with a different his his name is Steven helper is an old insurance magnate from the nineties they got very close when they're working on casinos out there in in the nineties Hilbert is the with the man responsible for Donald trump's orange tan fittingly enough he is the owner of Australian gold and according to my sources trump enjoys using Australian gold tanning products over someone is closing Hilbert is the one who actually connects Mike pence with Donald Trump in June of twenty sixteen they don't have a real relationship before that and it's been. tap it ever since that now now I should say this pence's absolutely loyal to Donald Trump based on everything I know based on everything I've seen but you never entirely sure if it runs the other way if trump is completely loyal to him also talk about some of the vice president's involvement in that your your crank phone call there is the reporting of that let's hear first that we have calls will go to Carol in mills river North Carolina on the Republican line. yes you know we're talking about right CNN how they're saying that he's worried about that you can call and everything but you're talking about talk about impeachment Sam and somebody else get man after comp but not I can't this whole thing is gonna be like Clinton if this doesn't impeach trial he's not going to get each and gain power that's what happened to Bill Clinton and that's what's going to happen here so I don't even know why by five spring attention to this now it is always going to be somebody there tromping options I think they should be left alone two years of this more than two years and this is enough thank you and have a great day Tom wood Beth. any thoughts yeah I mean the I hear that a lot I've I've heard that from my sources that you know certainly on my Republican sources that this is a continued effort to delegitimize the election you know the other side is that it's there's incredible concerns over what happened with that Ukraine call which we now know based on this you know credible Washington post story is included pence's top national is national security adviser Keith Kellogg so it's you know I think we're at the beginning of this thing we still have a lot to learn only ten days into the the official impeachment inquiry president trump has gone through a lot of. cabinet secretaries other advisers Lana acting folks what about the people that surround Mike pancer they long term aides of his yes absolutely. if trump is the expanse of wild chaotic universe Mike pence's very tightly controlled you see his it's very it's a very small circle mark short the current chief of staff came on with for vice president pants yes yeah yeah for for a vice president came on in two thousand nine you know in his career you see a big change introductory from two thousand eight to two thousand nine when they start getting serious about running for the White House and that's the team that still with him right now those are the most important people in a very rarely changes out you don't see a lot of new entrants into that world let's hear from Tom excuse me David in Kensington Maryland go ahead. good morning item no sale of but as president tense because I think he's he's an enabler thank you the passive aggressive counterpart to trial if he is that religious and takes the Bible that literally how can he not stand up to a man who is an admitted sex offender we have that on the tape who is lighted repeatedly band who is abuse the office if you if you just read the transcript of that tape just with Ukraine forget all the the stuff in the motor report you know he's guilty of abuse of power and the vice president clearly wants to be president so badly they'll stand there mute and and and not say anything and not do anything because he's a Republican first and as far as to the the office way before he's an American that's David I'll I'll let you go into the story that Tom will be I'll go brought up you're mentioning is well this is the reporting in the Washington post's late yesterday trump involve parents in efforts to pressure Ukraine's leader though officials say vice president was unaware of the

"Right Lehrer on WNYC. And while new revelations continue to emerge about clergy sex abuse. Have they lost their ability to shock and charges are winding up more in court. There's also a process taking place to if it's legit. Get it all out in two thousand sixteen higher ups in the American Catholic church. Brought what they call an independent reconciliation and compensation program. I R C P to New York again that was in the fall of twenty sixteen. Next guest is New Yorker contributor, Paul Healy who wrote a piece for last week's edition of the magazine may be sought called acts of penance the web version of the same story is titled what do the church victims deserve. So let's talk about the independent reconciliation and compensation program of the Catholic church. Pose also, a senior fellow at the Berkeley. Center for religion peace and world affairs at Georgetown, University and writes about the Catholic churches efforts to reckon with a history of sexual abuse in the church, generally Paul thanks for coming in. Welcome to WNYC, Brian. It's a pleasure to be thanks for having me. So for people not familiar with it at all introduce us to the independent reconciliation and compensation program. So the IRS EP is a program that. With established first of all the archdiocese of New York by cardinal Timothy Dolan. He engaged Kenneth Feinberg. The compensation expert who'd worked after the nine eleven attacks the Deepwater Horizon, oil spill and other disasters. We've allocating funds to people who've been harmed. Find bugs and interesting. I I've interviewed him and he has put himself in the position. This has been a central part of his career of figuring out after horrible attacks and natural disasters or thanks for which companies or governments whoever feel they need to compensate victims. How much is each victim entitled to compared to any other victim, given the total pool of money available. What what an awful way to have to spend your career. But that's the difficult work that he does putting value dollar values on people suffering relative to other people suffering based on how much total money is available. That's right. So in this case, he deputised his longtime associate Camille by rose to run the program in New York and cardinal Dolan, set aside one hundred billion dollars for the program. The point of that. Was we won't say to claimants we've run out of money, we will establish that this this money is available, and it's can in Camille are going to figure out how to locate it, but we're not gonna come up short. So if you're claiming valid you're going to get something Camille then. The word went out you send in your claims to the archdiocese the first face with people who had already in some form complained to the church about an active abuse. The second phase was people were making fresh claims Camille by Reuss. With many of the claimants judge their claims paid a pretty large proportion of the claimants receive something from the church and then as program developed and seem to work out. There was relatively little controversy. They expanded their programs to other places to the diocese of Brooklyn. It's all the diocese. New Jersey are going to begin a program like this later this year, a number of he's in Pennsylvania, and then ultimately will eventually Colorado and California we'll have similar programs so independent reconciliation and compensation program. So far, we've talked about the compensation part, what's the reconciliation part. It's complicated. The. Presentation that cardinal Dolan gives is that by giving money to people who have been victimized by priests and by creating a mechanism where they can tell what happened to them. That it's self a form of reconciliation beyond that the claim suggestion is that. With four owed knowledge and payment done independently out of the way, the church can be a free actor to to reconcile with people. The practice has been more complicated such as well. I think the biggest complication in the one that I try to really go into an in depth article with that. The church is not itself held the stories of the victims. And what happened the? Victims tell their stories to Camille bios, and she takes notes in that file than rest somewhere. And we'll we'll never be seen by the public, and my view probably because I'm a narrative writers that if the church really wants to reconcile and regain the trust of people it has to engage in the basic act of telling what happened. In using plain English and naming names and saying these things happened, let's acknowledge it, and we should say this story is deeply personal for you. As it is for many people, you grew up in the Catholic church or go to Catholic church. You're still a practicing Catholic. I see and you included your own experience with a priest from nineteen Eighty-six. That's right. I was violated by a priest who is on the university of ministration at Fordham, father, Edward Zoghbi. And he used the age old Jesuit practices spiritual direction, which is kind of one on one counseling between an elder and and younger usually two to prey on me and the boat went the he actually touched me. I got right out of there. But that happened at the moment. Nineteen eighty six win sexual abuse. In the church was first coming to light. And so everything that happens subsequently, I knew for myself. This stuff is real this is not. Witch-hunter immediate that has it out for the church. These things really happened and would your application have been accepted if you had applied for the CPI and some compensation from that know for couple of reasons the most obvious reason is that I was not a minor. I was a student in college. I was over eighteen the more complicated reasons that the different dyes have taken different positions on whether what are called religious order priests are included in the programs. So the priest violated me with a Jesuit priest. He was not a priest of the diocese of New York. He worked on sixtieth street in Manhattan, the ninety eighth street Manhattan, which is where the active heard, but because he was not a priest from New York, they're not responsible. Some of the diocese are devising a program that will enable them take responsibility for those order priests, but not not the New York when so far and was his name. Out there previously. Or are you putting a new allegation against the person who has not been publicly named as an alleged predator in the past in your out there for the first time, I did a fair amount of reporting and the people I spoke with knowledge some of the. General behavior that I described to them as recognizably the way Ed was or what Ed did. But as for. Touching the private parts of another person. You know, that's this is the first allegation. My guest is Paul ille- who wrote the piece in last week's New Yorker called acts of penance the web version called what do the church victims deserve. It's largely about the process that they call I R C P or the New York archdiocese, independent reconciliation and compensation program. And we can't take some listener phone calls on this listeners. Anybody who read Paul's article, welcome to call in anybody who've who's had your own experience as somebody who feels that you were abused by somebody in the New York archdiocese, maybe even applied for compensation under the AUSSIE P process. Two one two four three three WNYC four three three. Three nine six nine to anyone who's a practicing Catholic reckoning with the church abuse scandal that never seems to end. Maybe you have, you know, new and evolving feelings about whether you can be a practicing Catholic anymore or what you feel the church needs to do. And how much it has done what it needs to do in New York or generally two one two four three three WNYC to unto four three three nine six nine to pull tell us about how this effort with Feinberg and bureaus as the kind of mediators for compensation is meant to be a kind of a demonstration for cardinal Dolan since he launched the program. But given the failures that are sometimes ascribed to him from his time in Milwaukee from two thousand to two two thousand nine before he came to New York. So. When cardinal Dolan was archbishop Dolan in Milwaukee. He's he started. Kind of program, and it was complicated. There were difficulties those are part of the fine print of the from walkie. There's dozens of articles chronicling the back and forth between claimants victims and archdiocesan, lawyers and so forth. He also point. Moved money from one account to another apparently in the walkie partly to shield it from claims he maintains that it was perfectly this it. And that this is he calls it malarkey. It's in the papers. You can read it and the question of whether it was legal. It's not the question that I wrote about the people would raise the question is whether it was appropriate to shield sixty billion dollars of archdiocesan money from claimants. So the the legal defense is in. Necessarily pertinent here. So he comes to New York what he calls a festering wound of sexual abuse in the church and. Establishes this program, and it elicits claims about Theodore mckarrick cardinal McCarrick archbishop emeritus of Washington DC who began his career as a priest of the archdiocese of New York and secretary to the cardinal archbishop Terence Cooke accident use that in one instance, two inches actually took place in Saint Patrick's cathedral on Christmas during the Christmas masses. So cardinal Dolan. Following the protocols of his own program. Essentially turns McCarrick in and that's why we know the stories of what McCarrick did now that's a mediator Feinberg has to decide how much money victims will get were you surprised at how inexact as you put it in your piece, the process of compensation was and how much discretion Feinberg has to apply. As far as the levels of compensation that. Didn't particularly concern me. What's more concerning is that something that's so difficult to determine what happened? We'll we'll rest in the offices of the Willard office building. Where can find Bergen Camille bios work? There tremendously conscientious people they're very hard working. They're independent. They're totally committed to the program. But they're only two people the stories of what happened to people who were abused by priests in the church should be part of the public record. How can I how can you? How can future historians? Tell the story of this epoch in the church. If those records aren't available Roberta and basking ridge, you're on WNYC with Paul Ely from the New Yorker. Hi, roberta. Yes. Well, my husband, and I have you know, we feel very sad. And you know, we feel untrustworthy towards three species because of all of the sexual abuse scandal. We're still very devout Catholic. We still tend to Catholic school where they're pretty much not any access to pre it's mostly teachers and sisters. But when he went through say confession the other day, he told the priest that he wanted to release his anger and discuss it with a priest and trying to deal with his anger about what's happening with the church. And then he said, what do you have to pray, and you said envy sites out I would also counsel you to never to always make sure that your children are never left alone with the free. And this is a pretty telling him this. So that was quite we were quite taken aback, but he said to you know, I think that's sort of stance right now that is being taken indices mccutchen because here the Bishop here bishops check, yo has also said that he doesn't want sexual abuse claims going at all to see if he wants to straight to law enforcement. Can I ask how that experience in confession assuaged or didn't your husband anger?.
